Encell - National Centre for Lifelong Learning

Encell, the National Centre for Lifelong Learning, is the overall national body responsible for conducting research as well as knowledge dissemination within adult education and learning. Jönköping University Foundation is the parent of Encell, while its organisational host is the School of Education and Communication (HLK).


Erasmus+ is the new EU programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport.

At the end of 2006, the Council and the European Parliament adopted a European framework with eight key competences for lifelong learning.

On a regional level, there is a Nordic Network for adult learning (NVL) promoting lifelong learning by transmitting competence and experiences between the five Nordic countries.
